Review
(The following is a combined review for Let's Meet a Firefighter; Let's Meet a Librarian; Let's Meet a Police Officer; Let's Meet a Construction Worker; Let's Meet a Teacher; and ) PreS-Gr 2 — Told from the perspective of students on a class field trip, the books introduce community helpers and explain what they do. In Firefighter , readers learn about the tools and equipment needed in the work. Fire safety is discussed both on the job and in the home. In Librarian , children are introduced to "information experts, storytellers, and technology wizards." Readers learn that librarians teach about ebooks and technology and encourage questions to "pump up your brainpower." The book does not mention the necessary training and education a librarian must pursue in order to work in a library. In Police Officer , Officer Gabby visits the classroom and explains the different types of work police can perform throughout their day. Construction Worker discusses the various skills needed for this type of work. The class visits the site of a future school and learns about the types of machines used. In Teacher , the students visit a fourth-grade classroom. The captions discuss the types of equipment used in the classroom, such as computers and whiteboards, and about following rules. Cartoon-style animated drawings in bright colors introduce diverse characters who will capture children's interest. Chapters are divided into three parts, captions provide additional information, and there is ample spacing between sentences. Additional titles where more books on community helpers are needed.—Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MI --Melissa Smith (Reviewed February 1, 2013) (School Library Journal, vol 59, issue 2, p91)
